Excellent stuff to follow guys.

Well done to the Gonk I'm really happy for HRC - looks like KTM have it on for some competition in the Dakar.

Coma must be disappointed but I somehow had the impression he was not his usual self on this rally. I reckon he was conserving himself for the Dakar to be honest. Remember last year he put himself back very seriously by pushing too hard and crashing himself out of what would have been a very interesting comp with mudboy in South America.

Gonk on the other hand I think has just achieved alien status with that overall result.

As for the F5house: Thank you all for keeping us posted.

Good to see the F5results too - same old crew as b4, with me sneaking in a malle moto finish at the back. I'm figuring too old carried Brodo's race number over the finish line.

Looks like I missed a pretty awesome final stage.

Very happy for Gonsalvesh! Terrific show from Sam again! Great to see Grabbo grab a stage win!

Well, we really lost part of the drama on this Rallye because we didn't do our homework of figuring out the championship thing before. Looking at it now:

Before Morocco, both Coma and Speedy had done the 5 previous rallies of the championship. The results so far were:

Coma: 3 victories at 20 points each
1 2nd at 17 points
1 3rd at Sertoes that is worth 30 points (double of the usual 15).
Total: 107

Paulo: victory at Sertoes worth 40 points
3 2nds at 17 points each
1 4th at 13 points
Total: 104

As only the 5 BEST results count, to improve their total of points:

Coma would have to win Morocco, to improve his 2nd place at Argentina. If he would win Morocco, his total of points on the championship would climb to 110 and he would win the championship regardless of Gonçalves placing. So, it was all or nothing for Marc but he could still hope for Gonçalves to do worst.

As for Gonçalves, he would only win the championship if we would either be :

A) 1st or
B) 2nd and better than Coma,

All other combinations Coma would win the championship. A tie was never on the table.

Basically it was win it or bin it for Gonçalves and hence his concentrated semblant the whole race. Fantastic job on holding the pressure. Usually prone to nav mistakes like his coleague Barreda, this time Paulo did really well considering what was at stake.

Desde já gostaria de dar os parabéns ao Paulo Gonçalves pelo título de Campeão do Mundo. Foi um dia importante para a equipa, conseguimos vencer este Rally com o Paulo a conquistar o primeiro lugar. É o reconhecimento de um trabalho que está a ser desenvolvido pela Honda Japão há vários meses.
A nível pessoal, hoje terminei em segundo mas o problema eléctrico ocorrido na segunda etapa retirou-me todas as hipóteses de lutar por um bom resultado. Mas estou confiante que estamos no bom caminho para o Dakar.

At the outset I would like to say congratulations to Paulo Gonçalves for the title of world champion. It was an important day for the team, we can beat this Rally with Paul to win the first place. Is the recognition of a work that is being developed by Honda Japan for several months.
On A personal level, today I finished second but the electrical problem occurred in the second step took me every chance to fight for a good result. But I am confident that we are well on the way to Dakar. (Translated by Bing)

“Hoy ha sido un día complicado de navegación. Salía delante y la única opción que tenía era la de tratar de tirar al máximo, ya que Paulo [Gonçalves] salía por detrás de mí. Pero sobre el kilómetro 40 he sufrido una pequeña caída. He vuelto un poco nervioso y no encontraba la pista, ya que en la caída se me ha roto el ‘road book’. Me he ido tranquilizando y he conseguido alcanzar a los pilotos delanteros, y recuperar algo de tiempo, en un ‘way point’ que ellos no encontraban. Pero sin el ‘road book’ he tomado la dirección equivocada al inicio del tramo de dunas. He podido retomar la dirección, ayudando a Paulo [Gonçalves] que también andaba perdido. Me alegro por su título de Campeón del Mundo y por todo el equipo. A nivel personal, también estoy contento. Ha sido una carrera muy buena, con un nivel muy alto y un podio siempre es positivo. No ha sido fácil, ya que hemos estado todo el año parados, sin competir, pero hemos trabajado mucho y creo que estamos en la buena línea. Esperamos que en el Dakar todavía podamos mejorar.”

"Today was a difficult day of sailing. He came out front and was the only option that had the of trying to shoot the most, now that Paulo [Gonçalves] came behind me. But about 40 kilometer I suffered a small drop. I've become a bit nervous and couldn't find the track, since in the fall has broken me the book 'road'. I have been reassuring me and I managed to catch up with the front riders, and regain some time, into a 'point way' that they were not. But without the 'road book' I have taken the wrong direction at the start of the stretch of dunes. I have been able to resume the direction, helping Paulo [Gonçalves] which was also lost. I'm happy for his world champion title and the staff. On a personal level, I'm also happy. It has been a very good career, with a very high level and a podium is always positive. It has not been easy, since we have been all year unemployed, without competing, but we worked hard and I think we're on the good line. We hope that the Dakar we can still improve."

Done and done. Morocco was tough but great testing on the new KTM and some good navigation practice for DAKAR 2014. Big thanks to KTM and all the mechanics!

Rally of Maroc done and dusted. Was definitely not an easy one for me this year. I have a lot of home work to from now until Dakar. Still finished a respectable 11th overall.
Very blessed to have the Broadlink KTM Rally behind me. Letting me live my dreams....

Photo from Joan from just after the stage



You can see the broken RB Reader and the exposed RB plus some scratches on the R side of the bike. Looks like HRC needs to start using a properly crash tested Aurora Rally Equipment - Mk I Roadbood Reader.

Somewhat related post on FB from Vladimir & Pyndon. I thought it was funny.

Vladimir Kusnier
Great day in the dunes with Lyndon Poskitt, we ended up hanging on Marc Coma last few km before finish line with helicopter above


Lyndon Poskitt Seriously though, re. the helicopter footage, I think we were in big trouble!! Vladimir was railing the dunes next to coma and I was just behind with Caselli.....the helicopter came so close I thought it was Caselli's bike popping off the rev limiter, then I saw the camera man waving me out of the way! I'd love to see the footage of them coming into the finish of the rally with me and Vladimir guiding them in....classic!
